Can Custom Facial Implants Make Me Look Half-Caucasian?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Is it possible to look half ~ fully caucasian with a custom brow bone and nasal ( possibly chin ) implant and a blepharoplasty with the goal of making the eyes look as white as possible? My cheekbones are relatively high and wide and I have little to no facial recession.

A: Thank you for your inquiry try and sending your picture. I am not completely certain how one would define or judge what ‘half Caucasian’ as that is open to personal interpretation. But I think we have to realize that your facial canvas is Asian and that surgery may influence that to some degree but I have yet to see where a major change in facial appearance occurs no matter how the facial structure is changed. It is probably fair to say that you would end up somewhat less Asian but that should not be confused with being seen as partially Caucasian. The procedures you have mentioned would be the correct ones in that type of facial reshaping effort.
